Is the latest update 9.1.15 suppose to place KH4/KH7 on the deleted list?

Just to confirm, if the last update doesn't put KH4/KH7 on the deleted list, do we end date the entities in PREFIX TABLE and then place a check box DELETED in LIST OF VALID VALUES or am I wrong?

Thanks,
Vin, 73

Vin,
I've installed the 9.1.15 update but it did not change the AWARDS. Go in to Tools->Setup->List of valid values. On the navigate list, double click on DXCC and scroll down the browse part to KH4 and check deleted and then save it. Same for KH7. Afterward, update the Awards in Progress.

I also went to the prefix table and entered an End Date (08.26.2016) for both entities.

73s, Don

Not that it is an issue anymore, but for future reference, the prefix table has nothing to do with DXCC tracking. You may leave the prefix table as-is. You may still want it log Midway or Kure from an old QSO, and leaving that will save you the trouble of manually logging the correct DXCC in the DXCC field of the log.

What you want to do to delete a country is look it up in tools/list of valid values, and checkmark the Deleted checkbox for the country in question. If you did that for Kure and Midway, then you will want to uncheckmark Deleted, since they are no longer deleted.

Tnx & 73,
